They are good well built systems, But it wont be worth to upgrade it, The system supports a Intel P4 hyper threading processor which is ok for general computing but you wont really be able to use it for games. You will be able to put a better graphics card + more memory but its not worth it as far as im concerned as u can not put a decent processor in it.

How much u looking to spend on a system?
What will you use it for?
What country u from?

If u let us know the above we can recommend a good system for you

for general computing really, just need loads and loads of storage space,

+ why cant you put a new processor in?
+ between 200 - 300... would go to 400,

A quick search on google.com.uk for referbished computers comes to this:

Refurbished PCs from PC World - Get Refurbished PCs online here

And here's ones under 350 with 1 TB hard drives.
Better yet here: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/refurb...-criteria.html

Refurb is another word for "used, but resold" - someone acquired the system, cleaned it up, got it working and are reselling it. Other than the negative wording of "resold" or "refurb" the systems are otherwise fine for the most part.
